Music puts words to our struggles and longings in unique and meaningful ways. I think this is why “Speak Life” by Toby Mac resonates with so many people. Immediately I am reminded of Proverbs 18:21…
Death and life…take time to ponder this and perceive that our tongues hold great power.
On this episode I discuss:
- Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.” ESV
- The Hebrew word for “power“
- Deadly words vs. life giving words
- The context of Proverbs
If you have never heard this song before, you can watch the official lyric video below.
